Aikido is not a conventional fighting art. It is non-competitive and non-violent. Using joint locking techniques and throwing techniques, Aikido develops the ability to harmonize with, and thus redirect, opposing forces. The goal is to disrupt an opponent's balance using timing and control rather than strength. With the development of basic techniques Aikido provides a very powerful means of self-defense without undue aggression. Through regular training comes confidence, mental focus, and composure. $10 for first test to yellow belt at the end of the session. Only testing to yellow belt allowed in the program. Uniform can be purchased if desired.
